No FirstDown PlayBook Youth Crack Blocks
By FirstDown PlayBook on Jun 14, 2017

FirstDown PlayBook draws football plays for coaches and players at every level of football and that means we have plays that can, and have been run on Sundays and we also have plays that are best run in your local pee-wee football league.

We are very sensitive about the age of the player we are drawing the football plays for. Most of the time the main focus is about if the players at a certain age have the skill development to perform a block or a certain technique. Today we want to address a scheme that we feel like has it’s place at the high school level and above if properly taught, but not at the youth football level.

We are talking about crack back blocks. In our opinion no coach is going to be able to teach a defensive player how to recognize and defend themselves vs a crack back block when coaching 12 year olds and younger so we don’t draw them in our youth football section. If you are running a crack scheme with your youth football offense we hope you will take a couple of minutes to watch this short video.
